Nick Cannon at Know Your Rights Camp — On Community Building

A huge shout-out to our friends and supporters at the Know Your Rights Camp (KYRC) and of course our big sisters in journalism Nessa and Katrina B who made it possible for us to spend a few minutes with Nick Cannon this spring.

Nick was supporting the KYRC movement in Baltimore when our WGRL reporter Shandra Rogers had an insightful exchange with him on positive change for the community.

Thank you Nick Cannon for a thoughtful and inspiring conversation and thank you to Know Your Rights Camp Baltimore for an incredible day with youth — the heartbeat of the city of Baltimore.

Patricia Robinson — Superheroes Don’t Always Wear Capes

In this second of our series done by our HOT97 Nessa show interns, we interview the unstoppable Ms. Patricia Robinson of Emmis Communications and The Know Your Rights Camp.

Ms Pat, as she is affectionately known, is proof positive that superheroes don’t always wear capes — sometimes they sport 6-inch stiletto heels and leopard print!

Patricia Robinson is a trailblazing leader who is highly recognized for her contributions in the media industry, community and social activism engagement.

We are so proud of LESGC member Zipporah Najar for taking the lead on an informative interview on career, community and making those difficult life decisions.
